Rodney Dickson and his F#*cked Up World

I had the great pleasure to work very closely on this performance piece with Rodney Dickson. When he first sent his list of materials needed it was funny enough to post. From then on our group of conspirators and F*#cked Up Houston characters started coming together.

Talking to Rodney I gather that this piece is progressive and that each “F#$Cked Up Place gets added to the videos showing at the next event. So far the show has traveled to Beijing, Mexico City and Vietnam among other locations.

The meaning is to reflect the Chaos in our F#*Cked Up world. I think it also reflected the unity in our F#$%Ked upedness.

Thanks Rodney for letting me be myself and try and paint during this performance. I thought it was very funny that the nude models multiplied everytime I looked up. Yep. The audience started joining in with EVERYTHING!

The Great God Pan Is Dead: What I did at the Lone Star Explosion Biennale: Day 1.

by Dean Liscum. Photos by Steve Patlan

First, let me be totally honest. I don’t know much about performance art. I attend local performance sporadically and read about/follow the discipline even less frequently. That being said, here’s what I sawheardfeltdid at the Lone Star Explosion Performance Art Biennale 2012.
